Sometimes jewellery gets brittle and breaks, other times, it simply goes out of fashion. Whatever the reason for selling your 9ct, 14ct or 18ct gold, PJ's Jewellers, one of the leading gold buyers in Warrington, will always try to give you the very best price.
We put together some FAQs to help and if you have any questions, then give us a ring on 01925 571 207.
1. Do I need to bring ID?
Yes please do bring a driving licence or some form of ID that confirms your address, as we have to keep a record by law.
2. Does it have to be UK hallmarked?
Most gold jewellery, like bracelets, rings and gold chains are hallmarked, even imported items often carry a 14K or 18K stamp. In some cases we may have to test your gold and that process takes a few minutes. A colour change tells us the likely purity and we can offer a price based on that chemistry test.
3. Can I get paid direct to my bank?
Yes, we pay cash or arrange a bank transfer. If you do online banking then this will show up in your account immediately. Some older bank accounts charge for an overnight transfer, please contact your bank for details.
4. Do you buy gold or silver items as stock, rather than just scrap?
Yes we do. If something is sellable on its own merits then we will do our best to offer a fair price, based on the market value we feel can be achieved.
5. Do you do valuations for home insurance or Probate?
Yes we do. There is a cost for these services and it depends on the number of items, and the time involved.
Gold bullion prices fluctuate, with the price hitting over £1500 per ounce over the last year or so.
If you're not sure something is gold, get a magnifying glass and check for hallmarks. 375 means 9ct and 750 stands for 18ct.
925 means sterling silver.
